Steampunk Revolver by Airesyll Steampunk Revolver by Airesyll
A replica LeMat revolver I dressed up with some copper tubing, a pressure regulator thingy, and some holes.

When using this, I crammed some glowsticks down the lower barrel so that cool arcane light would glow from the holes. This didn't work very well, so I'm thinking of coming up with some sort of LED lighting to put in there.

This replica is a non firing prop manufactured by Denix.

A real LeMat is a French made percussion cap revolver that holds 9 .41 caliber rounds in its cylinder, and a shotgun round in the large underbarrel. The shotgun round is fired by flipping the striker on the hammer down to hit the lower firing pin. Pretty nifty for Civil War era technology.

Very nice... I thought the glowstick idea was a good one. Too bad it didn't work. What happened there?

The larger sizes were too large to fit in the barrel, and the smaller ones that fit were not bright enough.

Find a flintlock revolver and BAM "steampunk" revolver, no modification necessary, and it would be so much cooler.

you could try putting the leds in bullet casings and making it so that they can shine into the tube gives it a little more variety and can also be a really cool additive piece like on a ammo belt having multiple colors you know. just a thought

Actually the LeMat is an American gun.... Even though the guy who made it had a French name and lived in New Orleans, it's still American. Sweet prop though!

It was also manufactured in Paris and London. Though, you are right, it was designed by Jean Alexandre LeMat of New Orleans, and originally produced by John Krider of Philadelphia. It was almost exclusively a Confederate weapon, if not completely exclusive, during the American Civil War. What bugs me most about this work, is the cartridges.. when it's a cap and ball revolver.

Yeah, it is. But the guy was living in New Orleans at the time, so idk. We could base it off his nationality or where it was invented. It's not very clear xD
